Progressing Tanzania's brownfield Rukwa Coalfields towards a commercial development decision


• Rukwa Coalfields - Mkomolo, Namwele and Muze projects - previously mined, near-surface coal deposits


• 173 million total tonnes in-situ at Mkomolo, Namwele and Muze combined, of which 57.5 million tonnes Measured and Indicated at 17.42 MJ/kg (float density = 2.0, yield = 34.4%)


• 90% of this resource tonnage lies within Mkomolo and Namwele; Muze still to be fully evaluated


• Coal confirmed as suitable, after washing, for coal fired power generation


• Robust geological model; resource constrained to discrete coal zones identified within the overall coal measure sequence

Company Statement

Edenville Energy’s strategy is to undertake mineral exploration of its portfolio of coal and uranium assets and ultimately to increase the value of its assets through the development of these resources and where appropriate, commence production of these economically feasible assets. Edenville has both coal hosting uranium projects and coal projects. The Company will initially evaluate potential targets within the prospective hosted assets where both uranium and coal are expected to occur together.


The Company will actively manage geological exploration on the licences by implementing a phased strategy that will progressively increase the level of geological understanding for each licence to facilitate more focused exploration and resource development in the longer term. All field work will be conducted by citizens of Tanzania under the direct supervision of Edenville Tanzania, who in return report directly to the Board of Edenville. 


Initial work will consist of a desk-top review involving the collection, collation and reinterpretation of all available historical data, supplemented by regional-scale geological reconnaissance mapping and sampling. This will define the host geological units for mineralisation and allow for progressively more focused and detailed exploration that will potentially lead into a drilling campaign and ultimately ore body delineation and subsequent mineral resource estimations.


Edenville Energy’s southern projects lie at the crossroads of the Mtwara Development Corridor Program, a regional development initiative involving areas of four co-sponsoring countries (Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Tanzania), that are or can easily be served by the Indian Ocean port of Mtwara.


The program includes the development and rehabilitation of roads, lake ports, pipelines, and air transport facilities, many of them with private sector participation.

Current Operations

Three Core Projects within the Rukwa Coalfields

The 3 coal deposits of Mkomolo, Namwele and Muze all lie within the Rukwa Coalfield. All 3 projects are controlled by Edenville Energy and sit in a cluster; Namwele and Mkomolo are adjacent and Muze lies just 12km to the east.

Edenville Energy has a 90% interest in these deposits through Primary Mining Licences ("PML") and the remaining 10% is held by the local partner on the project. EDL also controls the Prospecting Licences surrounding the PML, that have been obtained from the Tanzanian Ministry of Mines and Energy.

All 3 projects are located close to existing infrastructure. Mkomolo and Namwele lie 25kms by road to the North-east of the major regional centre of Sumbawanga. Sumbawanga has a population of 30,000 and has banks, hotels, diesel, supermarket and regional government infrastructure. Muze is located close to the small village of the same name but does not have any services available.

There are several water sources nearby; Namwele and Mkomolo have a series of streams and small rivers close by, some of which flow all year round, and Muze is located close to the shore of Lake Rukwa which is a major source of water for the district. These supplies of water have the potential to wash the coal post extraction, adding value to the final product and supporting its commercial viability for power generation.

The Rukwa regions are currently dependent on electricity imported across the border from Zambia. Edenville's Rukwa Coalfields projects have strong political support and are located in the Mtwara Development Corridor; this is a Government backed development zone and an area of significant energy-related activity.

Edenville's projects have the potential for low cost setup to generate near-term positive cash flow. The combination of shallow outcropping coals and an established local/regional industrial demand to facilitate cement, paper and textile production gives flexibility regarding size of initial operations and end user. The Rukwa Coalfields are strategically located with regards to electrification plan for South Western Tanzania's scheduled new power transmission lines linking the north and south of the country. All 3 projects lie within 10km the east of the proposed route for the powerline and are some 300 km from the next nearest source of coal at Kwira.

Should the proposed powerline be built, the clustered nature of Edenville's 3 projects could potentially allow flexibility in production to satisfy both industrial and power production requirements.
